A GOOD DAY OUT AT ROOTS FARM
On Monday 13th September seven of us had a very enjoyable day at Roots Thorpe Farm in Barkby Thorpe.
As well as farm buildings, fields and views there were alpacas, ducks, chickens, four wallabies and a goat to draw. We were also lucky enough to have the opportunity to sketch the farrier shoeing horses in the yard. Some of us also used the excellent café.
It was lovely to meet up with other members, the weather was kind to us and the staff were very helpful.
Altogether a very successful day out.
